A team of assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc., will arrive on Monday, March 16 to examine all aspects of the RCPD’s policy and procedures, management, operations and support services.

The team will verify that the department meets the commission’s state-of-the-art standards as part of a voluntary process to gain reaccreditation – a highly prized recognition of law enforcement professional excellence.
